Who says "the condx are no good"?

This afternoon (local time) I expected to hear mostly LP Europe, but got lots of US stations (it was getting pretty late there).  All good signals - even QRP (AK6VS).  My little hex beam was swinging from SP US to LP EU every few minutes.

All good fun and thanks guys for the calls (mostly "old friends").



  1. Hello Patrick, could be very different in parts of the world. I listened on 20m this morning and the only thing I heard was noise and 1 very weak German station. And yes, my antenna was connected. 73, Bas

  2. Hi Bas.... of course you could be right... so was I that day... maybe a little exaggerating?? you may think... :-)


The CQ WW CW contest 24th to 26th November.

I got an invitation from Steve VK3JA to do the contest from his QTH.  Impossible to refuse.  Steve has one of the best antenna farms I know....
